As Copy points out it wasn't just the racism that was preposterously brazen. The sexism was ill as well:
Holla! Now that's more like the kind of shirt I like to wear.... in the bed.... with a tie... under my bedsheets?
Wonder if that guy's an investment baker?
Copy's even got a link to a spanking ad (i.e. white guy spanking his wife for not ironing his shirt or something) over there. So definitely peep it.
But seriously? Four white dudes and an african guy with a bone in his nose! I know Mad Men is schooling us on old school advertising, blahse blah, but that is bananas. Like LeBron-is-a-gorilla bananas. How can that get printed up on anything other than an ironic hipster-tshirt in 2012?
I never liked corny-ass Van Heusen shirts anyways, but I'm definitely going to be sneering in their direction when I rummage past their clothes at the salvation army. Pffft.
